No official word yet, but almost 90 minutes before kickoff it looks like strong-side linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer will be sidelined today, breaking a snap of 37 consecutive games.
He's sitting on the bench and has a small brace on his right thumb, which he had repaired by surgery a little more than a week ago.
Nick Roach, expected to start in his place, is warming up on the field.
It's also unofficial, but looks like wide receiver Brandon Lloyd will miss his fourth game with a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He's been out since the Philadelphia game on Sept. 28, and Lloyd said on Monday he would not play until he is "100 percent."
We'll have official inactives when they are available.
